The Missouri Department of Natural Resources (DNR) received grant funding from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to conduct Clean Diesel grant projects throughout the state of Missouri. In order to serve southwest Missouri, DNR awarded OCSS a grant agreement to oversee and fund Clean Diesel projects in the following counties: Cedar, Polk, Dallas, Barton, Dade, Greene, Webster, Christian, Jasper, Newton, McDonald, Lawrence, Barry, Stone, and Taney.
Clean Diesel funding will cover emission control equipment, idle reduction/SmartWay technologies, fuel conversion kits, engine repowers, alternative fuels, and vehicle replacements. Private and public diesel fleet owners in the above-mentioned counties may apply for Clean Diesel project funding through the Request-for-Proposals (RFP) process. There will be two separate funding categories: one for retrofits, repowers and alternative fuels and one for vehicle replacements. Interested parties should be sure to use the appropriate RFP for their proposed project. Applications should be submitted to OCSS by 5 pm (Central) on February 1, 2011. Applications received after this date and time will not be eligible for funding.
